The Oakland Raiders paid a heavy price to acquire Carson Palmer from the Cincinnati Bengals in 2011, forking over first and second-round draft picks.

Palmer's future with the Raiders looks uncertain right now, even though the team's only other real option at quarterback right now is unproven Terrell Pryor.
